The European Commission has approved under the EU Merger Regulation the acquisition of Global Vía Infraestructuras, S.A. of Spain by USS Nero Limited of the UK, OPTrust Infrastructure Europe I S.à.r.l. of Luxembourg, a subsidiary of the Canadian pension trust OPSEU, and PGGM N.V. USS of the Netherlands.
Global Vía is mainly active in the construction and management of toll motorway and rail infrastructure concessions in Spain. The three acquirers manage pension funds.
The Commission concluded that the proposed acquisition would raise no competition concerns, because it does not significantly change the market structure. The transaction was examined under the normal merger review procedure. More information is available on the Commission's competition website, in the public case register under the case number M.7851.
